well for about a week now i have this horrible sensation that something is stuck in my throat, and i can feel it, does not hurt it feels like there is a peanut stuck there and its really irritating now, it could be from my GERD, acid reflux or it could be from the hiatus hernia that i have, i read in the daily mail that this woman from the west midlands had her hernia repaired by an implant made from pig bowl, she was treated by a Mr Audun Sigurdsson from the telford royal hospital, basically the pig bowl covers the whole in the hernia and fuses the skin- i have not heard of this procedure, so i have conatcted the hospital but not heard anything as yet, and the great thing is the body wont reject it because its only skin! WOW but the bad news she had to go on a strange diet for two weeks as well
